Quiksilver History

 

Dalmatians have been in our lives for over 30 years as friends and companions. It all started with our first Dalmatian that was to be the family dog but we decided to try showing her. Well, we were hooked.  Shadow became our first American and Canadian Champion! She went on to produce multiple champions, Best of Breed winners, specialty winners and a Top Twenty dog. More importantly, Shadow passed on her excellent health and splendid temperament to all of her progeny....pet and show dogs alike. 

Since those early years, we have produced many conformation champions and performance dogs. We are proud of all of them. However, the most enriching experience for us has been meeting and becoming friends with so many people who have bought puppies from us. 

The photos below will introduce you to some of the Dalmatians that first joined our family.  Some are still with us and some are gone but each will always hold a special special place in our hearts.

Blaze was attacked as a 7 month old puppy and had over 100 stitches to his underside. In his first show back as a 10 month old, he got an All Breed Group One from the puppy class. He was briefly specialed and easily was a Top 20 dog, with numerous wins under breeder Judges. To the day he died he was not fond of bullmastiffs.
